Rick Live

The "It's Nearly Christmas" Tour (1997)

Rick has asked me to personally thank each and every one of you who has come to one of the performances on this tour. Well I can't do it personally, but I did meet quite a few of you at various locations, so on Rick's behalf - THANKS.

And to that b*stard who cleared their dressing rooms of wallets and phones at Sutton, spoiling an otherwise wonderful last night of the tour, Merry Christmas - NOT!
